Pune is one of the fastest growing “smart city” in India and also a “resilient city”. A smart City is defined by efficient handling of energy, mobility, infrastructure, governance, healthcare etc. Over the years, it has been identified as a cultural capital of Maharashtra, but now it is moving towards a mixed economy with cosmopolitan culture. It has been an emerging economy in the IT start ups spaces which is where we need to look at the new style of business buildings and infrastructure requirements. This attracts a lot of business personnel, professionals, providing a stimulant to the hospitality sector.
